I am saddened that Newark Mind has had its funding cut.

Considering mental health disorders/illnesses are a massive problem now and in the media more and more, I find it difficult to understand why more money isn’t allocated for mental health.

Newark Mind is a small charity that helps so many people, including myself.

I have had wonderful emotional support from volunteers and staff. I also valued the help with benefit forms and letters, etc.

Most of all, I will miss the friendly face, a cuppa and to know that I was not alone.

I really hope that we don’t lose Newark Mind completely. — H. Robb, Newark (Full address supplied).
